Technology is making many things easier. We can say that this concept isstanding example for that. So far we have seen LAN, MAN, WAN, INTERNET & manymore but here is new concept of “ RED TACTON ”which makes the human body as acommunication network by name .... HAN (Human Area Network). NTT lab from Japan is currently testing & developing this revolutionarytechnology.”Red Tacton”is a new Human Area networking technology that uses thesurface of the human body as a safe, high speed network transmission path. Red Tactonuses the minute electric field generated by human body as medium for transmitting thedata. The chips which will be embedded in various devices contain transmitter andreceiver built to send and accept data in digital format.In this paper we will discuss about red tacton, and its working states, andapplications of red tacton various fields. And we will compare our red tacton with theother technology for data transmission and know about human area network.

1. Introduction
We may have imagined the feature as a place crawling with antennas andemitters, due to the huge growth of wireless communications. And it is seems that thecurrent means of transferring data might already have a very serious competitor noneother than the human body. The concept of intra body communication, which uses the minute electric field propagated by the human body to transmit information, was first proposed by IBM and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT, in Tokyo) has developed aninnovative Human Area Networking (HAN) technology called
 (Red = warmcolor, Touch + action = Tacton) that safely turns the surface of the human body into adata transmission path at speeds up to 10 Mbps between any two points on the body,giving peer-2-peer a whole new meaning. 
2. What is Red tacton?
 The name
Red Tacton
was chosen for this technology because “touch-act-on” meaning“action triggered by touching”. Red Tacton is a new Human Area Networking technologythat uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high speed network transmission path.Red Tacton uses the minute electric field emitted on the surface of the human body.Technically, it is completely distinct from wireless and infrared .A transmission path isformed at the moment a part of the human body comes in contact with a Red Tactontransceiver. Physically separating ends the contact and thus ends communication UsingRed Tacton, communication starts when terminals carried by the user or embedded indevices are linked in various combinations according to the user's Communication is possible using any body surfaces, such as the hands, fingers, arms, feet, face, legs or torso. Red Tacton works natural, physical movements.
